WHALE WATCHING: As we cruise the waters surrounding Antarctica, be on the lookout for pods of feeding humpback whales. Sightings of these majestic creatures are becoming more common – especially near the Gerlache Strait.


Dear Fellow Traveler, I am writing to invite you on an epic adventure to the most remote place on earth. I hope you’ll join me as I sail the beautiful Seabourn Quest on our Ultimate Antarctica & Patagonia voyages during the austral summer of 2013 and 2014. I have had the good fortune to sail these waters before, and I can attest that the places we will explore on these voyages guarantee a cruising experience beyond anything you’ve witnessed. The Patagonian portion alone is an awe-inspiring voyage along some of the most magnificent coastlines in the world. We will cruise by great sea-run glaciers, thread channels between tall, forested islands, and visit rustic, fascinating ports and breathtaking landscapes. Add far-flung outposts such as Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands/Islas Malvinas and Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego, and it’s a traveler’s dream. But, of course, the heart of our journey will be spent in the pristine, unspoiled Antarctic. We have equipped Seabourn Quest to show you Antarctica in style. You will be joined by a skilled expedition staff specializing in a number of disciplines, who will inform you on board and accompany you ashore to interpret the wonders you encounter. Landings at historic sites, teeming wildlife colonies, and Zodiac cruising among fantastically shaped icebergs and abundant sea life will fill each day. And you will see it all from the gracious, luxurious base of Seabourn Quest, furnished with every comfort and amenity you could desire, and a staff dedicated to filling your time on board with Seabourn moments that match the wonders outside. I have experienced Antarctica before, and I can promise you that, if you sail with me on Seabourn Quest, you will discover the White Continent in a way that no one has before. I hope that I may welcome you on board to share one of these voyages.

Captain Bjarne Larsen Master, Seabourn Quest

South Georgia Island

■ Abundant green vegetation will greet you as you arrive. The seas here are rich in nutrients and food, supporting huge populations of penguins, seals and birds.

Born in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and currently residing in the Netherlands, Robin West has participated in some 40 Antarctic voyages to date. While studying Biokinetics at the University of Port Elizabeth, he qualified as a Master Scuba Diver Trainer by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors. This experience fostered a true passion for the sea and led him to establish two companies specializing in outdoor adventures and scuba diving. Later, the opportunity to explore the Antarctic and the South Pacific led him into the world of elite expedition cruising aboard a luxury private super yacht. Over the past 10 years, he has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience to lead expeditions on every continent and across every ocean, including polar exploration of both the Arctic and Antarctic.

Jarda Versloot-West has been working full time on expedition ships for the past 10 years. At 18, she bid farewell to her native Holland to explore Australia, which is where she discovered her passion for travel and her love of the ocean.

MAT T DOL AN NATUR ALIST / ZODIAC DRIVER On board November 20, 2013, December 11, 2013, January 4, 25, 2014 Matt’s passion for outdoor adventure started early and grew to define his career. Upon graduating from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, he began working in the global merchant fleet as a deck officer on oil tankers and container ships. A two-year stretch as a Kayak Officer and Zodiac driver on an expedition cruise fueled his passion for exploration, which led him and three friends to kayak 1,300 miles in 65 days through the Inside Passage. Throughout our Antarctic voyage, Matt hopes his love for exploration and appreciation of nature’s authentic beauty will enhance and deepen everyone’s experience.
